5 Palestinians expected to be freed as final stage of prisoner swap

Prime Minister Ehud Olmert will present the cabinet on Sunday with a proposed list of five Palestinian prisoners to be released as the final stage of the prisoner swap with Hizbullah, Israel Radio reported Saturday. As part of the deal, Israel agreed to free a number of Palestinian prisoners - the number and identity of which are at its discretion - several weeks after the swap. According to the radio report, the low number of prisoners expected to be released was a result of Israel's dissatisfaction with the information Hizbullah provided on missing IAF navigator Ron Arad.
